These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Values Resonance: When the Lizards speak to humans with horror about males who use ginger to get females to mate with them, they are shocked when the humans (men and women) laugh it off. Given the problems with date rape drugs in our society today, modern readers are more likely to sympathize with the Lizards. Eventually, as is evident in Homeward Bound, the humans' sensibilities evolve to match those of the Lizards (as well as modern readers).
